Saw this and thought it was somewhat worth sharing. Note that I'm not endorsing this product and you'll have to decide for yourself if it's worth the money. But if you really miss Matt between events maybe this will help :D

That explains how he was able to keep his sanity during PDXLAN32A and 32B. He's a robot! Spork has finally began development of SkyNet.

I've backed quite a few kickstarters, but this one sets off my "Yellow Alert". I'm not too sure this one will ship with all the features they are claiming.

Yeah, the good news is they are a company that has produced products, which puts them ahead of the clueless kickstarters. Still, Kickstarter is not a store. You are throwing money into a void and hoping something good comes back to you. You may get nothing or what you get may not resemble what you imagined.

Well I think I may get my own vector. He seems pretty helpful. I'm sure the wife and kids will love playing with him when I dont hog him all to myself. He does cost a little more than discussed.....
